• 5 Things You Didn't Know About FarmHer

June 18, 2018 4 Comments

1. FarmHer has been to 20 states

A goal of Marji's is to photograph women in agriculture in all 50 states! In five years she has traveled to almost half of them while filming for the FarmHer show on RFD-TV that started back in September of 2016.

(If you are from a state that hasn't been visited yet, suggest a FarmHer here!)

2. The FarmHerd has only worked together in an office for one year

For almost four years, the FarmHerd worked remotely. June 2017 the FarmHer team moved into an office in Urbandale, Iowa. This allows for better collaboration and communication among the team. Also as a bonus, the FarmHer products were able to be fulfilled in-house.

3. The first farm was photographed in April 2013

It was a cold rainy day in Iowa when Marji stepped foot on Lois Reichart's goat farm in Knoxville, Iowa. Dairy-Air Farm was the first of seven farms for a photo project titled 'FarmHer.' Little did Marji know, five years later FarmHer would be a national business and she would still be taking photos of women in agriculture all over the country.

4. The team is small but mighty, with 3 full-time employees and 3 part-time

There is a lot that happens behind the scenes of FarmHer. Everything from planning events to shipping out orders, this team makes it all happen. If you listen to the podcast episode titled 'Duo Cas on Branding' (here) you'll hear Marji and Lexi talk about the importance of building a good team. These ladies all work together to bring you the stories of women in agriculture from FarmHer.

5. FarmHer has photographer over 225 women

....and counting! FarmHer celebrated its 5th anniversary this April and Marji counted up how many women that FarmHer has photographed and was humbled knowing the number was well over 200. These images tell the stories of the hard-working women and carry out the mission of FarmHer, shining a light of women in agriculture.

Hi everyone,
The last two years I have volunteered with FarmHer at the Iowa State Fair through Nationwide Agribusiness. This year I did sign up for two shifts through NW Ag during the fair, and then I retired from NW Ag the end of June so I am available for even more volunteer hours at the fair if you need me. I love working your booths. Please let me know what I can do to help this year!! Katie Bolinger

We must stand up, together.  FarmHer lives within the culture of agriculture.  I have said it 100 times if not 1000, agriculture is a culture and like every culture, it needs diversity to thrive.  Diversity in color, gender, geography, age, thought, size…diversity in everything.  This is our culture and it is on all of us to stand up and speak out against all types of racism.
